Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S10e doesn’t have that fancy new ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but that means that screen protectors aren’t a special brand of confusing. The side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the S10e adds a different challenge — and to be sure, there are far fewer cases around for the S10e right now than the larger models — but that doesn’t mean we don’t have some top-notch cases to protect the S10e’s hole-punch screen.
Clear as crystal
Spigen Liquid Crystal Air
The Liquid Crystal line is my favorite clear case around — well, except for the sparkly Liquid Crystal Glitter variant — because it’s thin, grippy, and doesn’t get in the way. Perfect port cutouts and easy application make a good case great.
The Ringke Fusion-X is a unique hybrid case we can’t get enough of. The clear back allows your S10e to shine through, and at the same time, there’s a rugged bumper that offers reliable shock absorption and impact resistance. We also love how many colors it comes in!
Spigen Neo Hybrid
I love the Neo Hybrid Series, and it got redesigned for the S10 series with a new rear texture. That’s right, friends, the Herringbone texture is gone, and I’m still not sure how I feel about that, but this case is still drop-dead impressive in four colors, including this lovely Arctic Silver!
Galaxy S10e Leather Back Cover
Samsung’s leather case comes in seven colors from a downright garish pink and yellow to a darling Red, Navy, and Green. Whichever shade you select, this case is smooth, thin, and lovely.
Galaxy S10e Silicone Cover
Samsung’s official silicone case is perfectly sculpted to the S10e’s every slope and curve, and no matter which color phone you get, there are one or two colors here that are sure to complement it fabulously.
Starry Night shine
Galaxy S10e LED Back Cover
LEDs litter the back cover of this magical case and light up like a shimmery night sky when you get notifications. It’s an expensive case to be sure, but so much more sophisticated than those pouring rhinestone/sequin cases.
Spigen Slim Armor CS
Spigen’s Slim Armor CS brings the best of both worlds into one sleek package. On the one hand, you’ve got a rugged dual-layer case with Air Cushion Technology to protect against serious drops/falls. At the same time, there’s a hidden compartment on the back to store up to two credit cards!
Go bold or go home
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style
This hybrid case combines a bold TPU bumper with a hard plastic back to let the Galaxy glimmer to shine through while keeping scratches and smudges at bay. This case is available in black, too, but the two-tone purple version is just darling, isn’t it?
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro
Built-in screen protectors don’t play nice with ultrasonic fingerprint sensors, but the S10e doesn’t have one, so Supcase could build one into the Unicorn Beetle Pro case, along with a kickstand and some port covers to keep out the grime!
X-Doria Defense Shield Series
This 10-ft drop-tested case is proof positive that clear cases can be durable and drop-dead gorgeous without breaking the bank. This durable hybrid case comes in Red, Black, and Iridescent you have to see to believe!
Grip it good
Speck Presidio Grip
This hard-backed case is one of the most distinctive styles on the market, with raised, rubberized ridges in a geometric pattern that is synonymous with prestigious case maker Speck. Available in five two-tone color combinations, the Grip will help protect your S10e from drops and sweaty slips.
Thin as glass
Totallee Ultra Thin
Totallee’s case is the biggest name in ultra-thin cases right now, and it comes in three styles: an opaque matte white, matte black, and a glossy TPU clear case. No matter which one you pick, you’ll "totallee" be happy with this minimal case.
Thin and soft
Spigen Silicone Fit
This is a new series for Spigen, a thin, grippy little case that’s designed to hug your Samsung Galaxy S10e’s every curve and give you protection from bumps, nicks, and dings without adding unnecessary bulk to your phone.
Colorful as a candy bar
anccer Ultra Thin Fit
This thin case may not give you super-duty protection against drops, but the candy-shell coating it gives your S10E will provide it with scratch protection while keeping your ports free and unobstructed. There are two finish styles and five colors to choose from.
Hard as stone
Spigen Rugged Armor
Spigen’s entry-level TPU case is understated and dependable, giving you some drop and scratch protection without drawing unwanted attention on your shiny, breakable new phone. We appreciate how thin the case is, but another color other than black would be great to see.
Caseology’s been a company we’ve trusted with our phones for years, and the Parallax’s unique cubist texture on the back is grippy, mesmerizing, and shock-absorbing, all in one. The hybrid construction allows for rugged protection in a stylishly slim size.
Ready for anything
OtterBox Commuter Series
OtterBox is one of the most trusted names when it comes to cases, and its Commuter Series provides your S10e with incredible protection from just about anything. The case slides easily into pockets, comes in three colors, and is surprisingly lightweight.
Premium look, low price
HNHYGETE Soft Slim
This case looks like a card-slot wallet case at first glance, but sorry, it’s just a dapper-looking TPU case. It has some nice angled edges to the back as well as a leatherish texture, complete with faux stitching around the back edge.
GOOSPERY Protective PU Leather Bumper Cover with Card Holder
This thin leather hybrid case does feature slim card slots and darling detailing, and the TPU inner shell ensures that it grips your S10e well and absorbs more kinetic force in a dreaded drop. Available in Black, Dark Brown, and Brown, I like the Dark Brown best because it allows the tricolor accent to pop against the leather.
Into thin air
ESR Essential Air
This crystal clear 1mm case is thin enough to feel like its invisible while still offering your phone protection from scuffs, slips, dings, and small drops. It won’t bulk up your phone the way polycarbonate cases do.
Crystal clear bargain
MoKo Crystal Clear
Clear cases are a bit like vodka: they’re supposed to be colorless invisible that let the phone’s beauty shine through. MoKo’s bargain-priced model combines a rigid back with a shock-absorbing TPU bumper for thin, reliable protection. It even includes a lanyard loop on the side, if you need to tether it to your arm.
You have endless case options for the Galaxy S10e
As you can see, there are a lot of case options for the Galaxy S10e. That’s great if you like having a lot to choose from, but if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, we don’t blame you one bit.
For most people, we’d recommend picking up the Spigen Liquid Crystal Air. Why? It allows the S10e’s striking design to shine through, doesn’t add too much bulk/weight, and it’s affordable. That’s a winning combination if we’ve ever seen one, and we think most of you will be quite happy with it.
If you’d like something a bit more luxurious, the Galaxy S10e Leather Back Cover from Samsung is the way to go. Is it expensive? Yeah, but the genuine leather looks fantastic and we love how many different colors it’s available in.
